Description:

Just left of Idol Point Arete. Fun crack climbing with a wild flake traverse once you get past initial 15 feet of questionable looking rock.

5 out of 5 stars incredible route....don't be scared off!

If you run and hide because of this route's reputation as an "adventure" climb, then you will be missing out on one of the best routes in the Gorge at the grade, in my limited opinion. This thing is incredible. Definitely climbs like a trad route, and I should have done the whole thing on gear. Does NOT need the bolts, but I understand why they are there, I guess. Questionable rock at the bottom...plus, no bolts would scare people away and this thing deserves to be climbed. If you know how to jam, then this thing feels more like 5.11-, although it is sustained.
